Description

It may just look like an oversized keg at first glance, but the 1 bbl Kegmenter can do so much more! These stainless steel vessels are perfect as a pressure fermentation vessel, storage brite tank, or even a large-batch home still. Welded tri-clamp openings offer versatility for rigging up this unit however you see fit. Large 4" tri-clamp opening at the top and two 2" tri-clamps ports at the bottom. The large 4" opening at the top makes it easy to get inside the keg for cleaning, and the 2" ports at the bottom can be fitted with valves, heating elements, or other TC accessories and fittings. The kegmenter is well suited for use as a fermenter, brite tank, or top-up barrel.

The 1 bbl Kegmeneter comes with end caps and clamps to plug the bottom ports, and a pre-drilled 4" cap for the top opening with a stopper and airlock included. You also have the option to use the Ball Lock Post lid with floating dip tube, which can be used for pressure fermentations or transfers. Also a 4" x 2" TC reducer would allow for adding a Reflux or Pot Still for distillation.

Specifications:

  • Volume: 1 bbl (31 gal)
  • Working Pressure: 3 bar (43.5 psi)
  • Made from stainless steel
  • 41" H x 15.5 Ø

What would you use to cold crash the beer (in my case, cider) inside this? The TC coolstix seem to be for smaller batches... in fact I can’t find anything universal for cooling 1bbl batches in general. I guess I could put it in a chest freezer? Not the solution I was hoping for though.
Scott Lodwick on Mar 14, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Personally I would get a kegerator or other front-loading refrigerator that will fit this large tank. You could apply coils to the outside underneath an insulating jacket and run coolant through the coils. Coolstix would help but you may be able to use a combination of different techniques to achieve the crash temperature you're looking for.
Could these be used to Lager? And pressure transfer?
Philip Mountain on Dec 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes and Yes. I replaced the standard lid with the BrewBuilt Pressure Pack lid which has ball-lock quick-disconnect fittings for gas-in and liquid-out.

Perfect for 20-25 gal yield
Now able to ferment 20 gal batches. Fits well in a commercial upright freezer. Replaced the lid with "BrewBuilt™ Pressure Pack with Clear Float Technology" so I can pressure transfer directly into kegs. During fermentation, connect a blow off tube to the gas quick disconnect. During chilling, remove the blowoff tube and add CO2 to avoid pushing sanitizer into the fermentor via the blowoff tube). Replaced one 2-inch triclamp cap with a 2-inch triclamp thermowell from norcalbrewingsolutions.
